I entered My Old Man at the Evergreen State Fair (Monroe, WA) competitions under Sculptures, Fine Arts section and I found out that he received two ribbons:
- First Place, and
- Special Award!
Pretty cool! Seems like everybody won awards but it is still super cool that he has a nice big ribbon accompanying him back home. My Old Man was created last year at the Wendy and Toby Froud workshop in Portland, during a very difficult time in my life. Of all my dolls, he will forever remain the dearest to me, present or future. So I am very happy and proud that others can see how special he is.
If you want to see him, he is still on display at the Evergreen State Fair, Building 500, till September 5, 2016. He is in a glass case in the middle of the middle room.
